One of the main characteristics of self-discipline is the ability to forgo instant and immediate gratification and pleasure, in favour of some greater gain or more satisfying results, even if this requires effort and time. Self-discipline gives you the power to stick to your decisions and follow them through, without changing your mind, and is therefore one of the important requirements for achieving goals.
The possession of self-discipline enables you to choose, and then persevere with actions, thoughts and behaviour, which lead to improvement and success. It also gives you the power and inner strength to overcome addictions, procrastination and laziness and to follow through whatever you do.
This is a very useful and needed skill in everyone’s life, and though most people acknowledge its importance, yet very few do anything to develop and strengthen it.
We at The Tulip School train and expect our students to abide by the rules laid by the school authorities, developing themselves as self-disciplined individuals.
The School strongly feels that children must learn the value of discipline. Enrolment in The Tulip School implies, on the part of pupil and parent, willingness to comply with the requirements and regulations of the school. Once parents entrust child in our care, we expect the parents and the child to follow the rules of the school.
